FOUR & MORE: Best 1st Round Games


1. Rubidoux at Riverside Ramona — A late CIF-Southern Section scheduling change necessitated a rematch of a Week 0 game which the Falcons won at home, 17-7. Both teams are, in many respects, different now then they were then. Will Rubidoux begin its season with a win over the Rams and end it with a loss at Ramona? Or will Ramona get the best of the Falcons the second time around?

2. Yucaipa at San Bernardino San Gorgonio — Former league mates come together for the second time this season and the fifth time since 2012. The Spartans may have taken a step back this year while the Thunderbirds jumped up to snatch an at-large bid despite their fourth-place CBL finish.

3. Hemet at Menifee Heritage — It’s a battle for the hearts and minds of the San Jacinto Valley meet for the first time in the postseason. The Patriots routed the Bulldogs in two meeting earlier this decade (combined score line 95-10), but haven’t played since 2011.

4. Menifee Paloma Valley at Redlands — Expect plenty of fireworks here as the Wildcats and the Terriers, their long-time coach and their two big-play QBs, match up for the first time ever.

Fontana Kaiser at Ontario Colony — Pair of recent CIF-SS champions, Cats (2013) and Titans (’14), go toe-to-toe.
MoVal Vista del Lago at Hesperia Oak Hills — Can Bulldogs, who didn’t play in Week 10, fend off Ravens?
Riverside Poly at San Jacinto — Bears, a CIF-SS Inland Division finalist, struggled to get to .500, take on Tigers.
